New agricultural entrepreneurs deserve your support
“Ah, summer! Time for trips to the pool, the park, and don’t forget your local farmers’ market. If you care about small businesses as I do there’s an easy, fun, and healthy way to support one of the most important American small businesses the small, local, sustainable farmer. Many of these farmers are not just growing great fruits and vegetables, they’re growing innovative, entrepreneurial businesses.
“There’s new entrepreneurship in the agriculture movement,” said Paul Muller, one of the four co-owners of Full Belly Farm, a 300 acre farm in Guinda, California. Full Belly has been selling at farmer’s markets for almost 30 years, helping it survive and innovate sustainable, profitable farming methods.”
